  1. Temperate ping seed needs to be sown very fresh in my opinion.I sow mine onto old sarracenia compost to avoid mould issues you can get with new compost sometimes.if sown within 6 weeks of harvesting,some seed germinates in the same year and grow a bit before going dormant,then the following spring it will all germinate naturally

  3. I really didnt expect this to happen! Bought a small clump of this species some 4-6 weeks ago. By reputation really hard species. Now to my supprice it is in Bloom. Is it struggeling for its life after transit, or did I do something right?

  4. Hello averyone. After several years i’d like to share my experience with Nepenthes indoor. If your winter is cold like mine is (i live in north Italy and here isn’t rare to reach -10 celsius or less) i’ll hope my little tutorial could be helpfull :) Every october i need to move my plants indoor, years ago it was easy with few plants but it was more difficult every year and right now i have lots of plants and i decided to buy a little greenhouse and turn it into a GIANT growbox. soooo first... you need space! i bought a 2,5 x 2,5 m esagonal greenhouse that costs like 80€

  5. The story began on 9-8-2020 ! I bought the plants from Harro Heidt a very nice and well known grower from Germany and he send them to me on 9-8-2020 very well packed and poted! The plants were stay to Germany until 30-9-20 DHL could not find them anywere in Germany althouth Harro did anything that he could to find the plants ! I receive them in Greece after 64 days of shipping on 13-10-2020 and all that time the cephalotus ware in dark! As you will see the plants after so many days without the light they lost all the green tissue leafs and pitchers and they produse a white new growth w

  13. 4 months on and Drosophyllum doing well. Now to get them through the winter! I have a cunning plan to get them into a bigger pot next spring without disturbing the roots.

  14. You may get the plant to recover somewhat over the next couple of weeks and get some dew on the leaves but unless it has some sun and warm temperatures I doubt it will grow more leaves at this time of year. The plant naturally does not grow much over the winter months. Here is an article on growing Drosera capensis you may find useful - Drosera capensis growing care - although you can also find cultural instructions for the plant on most carnivorous plant nurseries. Kind regards, Rob

  15. You need water without alcaline minerals. If your tap water is naturally acidic, you might get away with it. But Most likelly no. Get rain or destilled water. Br Magnus

  18. I started growing this plant somewhere around 2007 and for 2 years it was very easy and multiplying nicely. In 2009 I then acquired more of a slightly different colouring and that winter all the plants developed a nasty wasting disease. The leaves would die off very quickly and I was contemplating binning the lot. As I have both Scots and Yorkshire blood this was not really an option I could live with so I selected the healthier plants every year and finally this has given me 2 flowering plants this year and the promise of many more next year. I know they're not expensive but it was w

  20. I gave in to its demands and it's happily snuggled into a long tom of live sphagnum. Oh and just a quick aside for those who think D.regia are very difficult to transplant. Spot which were re-potted a few weeks ago ;)

  23. Drosera regia emerging from dormancy. My plants are in a greenhouse and receive full sun in the afternoon and evening in the growing seasons.

  24. Actually in the UK its reputation is it's as tough as they come. Mine have never been artificially fertilised, stand in water in the growing season, and have been subjected to temperatures from -18C (0F) to in excess of 38.4C (100F). It's also not fussy as to the medium mix. I may also mention that my oldest plants are in media they were planted in 25 years ago. That's a really sensitive species.

  25. I must admit I keep my water level higher than you are doing. I have mine at about 5cm. I've never had to feed my plants in the 27 years I've been growing this species and they catch very little in the position I have them. I do however use rainwater, are you on RO? As for the medium I've tried most composts I've had in use at the time I was potting up. Peat/perlite, peat/gravel/sand, live sphagnum, live sphagnum/perlite. I have been considering trying brick dust as nothing seems to bother them. My plants do go into dormancy starting in September and finishing in early spring although some s

  26. So that means I've been doing it wrong for 27 years by sitting the pots in water with air temperatures of 100F + ( 38C +)
